heheh gray character! you have style fernando! Do you plan to model it?

01 January 2002, 04:55 PM
Very nice work!

Your technique is great. I think you should still model it even if you miss the deadline. It would be good to see animations of it!

Hey great work. Love your style. For the rest of you guys if in need of concept art I happy to do it for you. I nord and draw all day anyway might as well do some concept for the 3D Heads out there. All I ask is that you show me the result of you work.

Hi everybody .

Well , after so many hits , I believe that now I realy have to model it in 3d .

I am just in the beggining , the base head is already done , and the parrot's too .

btw , the name of the character is "Captain Catfish" ( capitao Bagre to the brazilian guys ) .
and the parrot is his personal computer "Poly-Gon' .

the rest of the body will have to wait till next week .

thanks for all who sent a reply .

The next step is the construction of the hands and legs .
I hope to do a new post until the end of the week .

Cool !

I like the friendly look of this guy.
The parrot is a good idea.

I like it !!


01 January 2002, 07:31 PM
Almost there ......

I finished the base of the body . only minor details as the atachement of the tail to fix..
Sorry if the lights arent soo good .

As this is a work in progress challenge , I will try to complete this project from concept art to finished model .

again , thank you for all your comments

01 January 2002, 04:52 PM
As I already told you in person, very nice model!

And I specially like the parrot - good idea! :)

01 January 2002, 11:38 AM
great work !!!

I love his parrot :D too great
but his foot are too long for me

01 January 2002, 03:06 PM
Haha great character! :)

I suppose he's quite a good swimmer with the skin between his fingers and toes! :D :D :D

01 January 2002, 10:54 AM
Thank you for all the comments.

Mickatt . I will try to reduce the feet a little , but remember that the rules ask for big hands and feet .

So many people told me that liked the parrot .I believe I will have to improve him too .

I know that is a little too soon to talk about it , but In the next challenge . I would like to model a feminine figure . A girl alien , warrior , hero , whatever .

what about it ?

01 January 2002, 05:47 AM
e ae blz? legal a galera da vetor zero por aqui, vc realmente pegou o feeling da coisa. Alias, vc foi o cara q melhor o fez, ate melhor do q pascal, entretanto ele esta com um modelo formidável, eu provavelmente demoraria meses adicionando tantos detalhes na geometria e provavelmente não chegaria num resultado tao bom...

valeu cara!

01 January 2002, 12:41 AM
Pow cara ficou excelente seu trabalho botei fé mesmo!!!..
muito bem a modelagem concept etc. etc.!
10 show de bola!!!
